Tonight after Ginger and I went to Lowe's to purchase carpet for the whole house we came home and took a nice long walk. Ginger really prefers not to walk when it is cold outside, I can actually feel her shivering all the way up her leash! Poor girl... But I figured with a cold (ish) snap coming through I would take her for a long walk tonight since she will be getting quick walks for the next few days. For some unknown reason when given a choice on a walk, Ginger will walk right up against any solid surface like houses, fences, walls, etc. It is a weird trait she has and that trait helped Charles map out the route she took when she got loose from our yard a few years ago. He mapped out all the fences in the area near our house and then pinpointed all the spots she was spotted at by neighbors calling in. He was able to narrow down the search on day two, to one street that he suspected she was on and while he and Sisterdear were putting fliers in mailboxes a nice old man asked if he was looking for a "pregnant Chihuahua". She was not pregnant, just fat and yes we were looking for her! So today's photo is of Ginger walking along one of those fences from her thwarted escape route!
